Chanel Spring 2010










Chanel, The one I (and I'm sure many of you!) have most impatiently been waiting for! This is so pretty, I can hardly contain myself. Here's a snippet of the report from style.com...

"Chanel was up at cockcrow for a gigantic fashion romp in the hay. A huge barn had been conjured up in the center of the Grand Palais, and the models emerged from it, wheat ears clinging to their tousled blond Bardot beehives, straw stuck to their clothes, and a little smirk and stagger in their step as if just caught out at you-know-what. Naughty, naughty!

But with this collection, Lagerfeld's summing up of the season's tendencies—beige, ivory, and black; rough textures; transparency and lace—was spun into a collection so masterfully balanced between classicism and current fashion affairs that the whole thing felt delightfully sure-footed. The knack was that he didn't rush it—just let the thing keep bouncing out in a sustained variation of caramels, taupes, and ecrus, all logically adapted to the house's nubby tweed suits, frothy blouses, and fluttery chiffons. The editing of everything to short lengths looked sweet without being chichi—the test being that every teenage girl looked naturally at home in the little thigh-split skirts (that's what has happened to the bottom half of the Chanel suit), as well as in the mini-crinis and ruffled dance dresses."

  1. I gotta say, I love all the outfits and the styling EXCEPT for those clogs. I can't get behind clogs, even when they're high heeled and fashiony. The white ones just look like sexy nurse....

  5. Ok,I may get blasted but I'm crazy about these. I love Chanel but these don't appeal to me. I wear the perfume though. Have for a million years. Love the classic styles of Chanel from yester-year....

  16. That's too funny, because I opened style.com's page and was loving the clothing...and then, I looked down at the shoes. I thought they threw the look off a bit, perhaps I would have to see it live to appreciate the overall feel he was going for?

    Thanks for all of your thoughts!

  17. so I love numbers 4, 9, 14, and 16 and the black peep toe shoe with ankle strap...but, all way to short for anyone over a certain age ;) the clogs, well, front on they look (hmmmmm) ok...but getting a side view, well it does have everyone talking...maybe that was the point..
